A Christmas Story

On 16 December 2009 Garrison Keillor wrote a brief editorial titled Nonbelievers, please leave Christmas alone, the thrust of which was "Christmas is a Christian holiday - if you're not in the club, then buzz off". What really caused a stir was:
Unitarians listen to the Inner Voice and so they have no creed that they all stand up and recite in unison, and that's their perfect right, but it is wrong, wrong, wrong to rewrite "Silent Night." If you don't believe Jesus was God, OK, go write your own damn "Silent Night" and leave ours alone. This is spiritual piracy and cultural elitism, and we Christians have stood for it long enough. And all those lousy holiday songs by Jewish guys that trash up the malls every year, Rudolph and the chestnuts and the rest of that dreck. Did one of our guys write "Grab your loafers, come along if you wanna, and we'll blow that shofar for Rosh Hashanah"? No, we didn't.
Oh my. "Dreck", for those who don't know, is yiddish slang for shit.

The reaction from self-identified jews was unhinged. It follows a template including some or all of the following elements: denying Keillor's claim, condemning him for it, acknowledging its truth, and saying nastier things about Christians. I'll cite a few good examples. Here for instance is a response attached to the original editorial:
I am astounded Mr. Keillor that It has taken you most of your life to realize the depravity of the non-believers. Where I live in Silicon Valley, every ethnicity can be found on my block. Probably half are not Christian, yet most have Christmas trees. Lets send these non-believers to Auschwitz where they and the Jews can learn the true meaning of Christ. The Jews. Oh the Jews . They have contaminated Christmas by writing music and making movies about it. They have ruined it by inventing running a toy train under the Christmas tree and hosting a parade in New York. They have dared to stand up to the WASP tradition of segregation and hate.They actually claim that Jesus was one of them. Mr. Keillor enjoy your Christmas, Jew-less with Mel Gibson. You may be the last true Christians.
This self-righteous fellow equates criticizing shitty Christmas songs written by jews to putting them in a concentration camp. He gets so lost in his sarcasm that he reveals an acceptance of a broadened version of Keillor's beef - that "the jews" righteously ruined Christmas, their hostility justified by "the WASP tradition of segregation and hate".

More reader comments were published as separate items. For example, Keillor has wrong villain for Chrismas' ills:
Yesterday, perhaps at roughly the same moment you were putting the finishing touches on "Non-believers, please leave Christmas alone" (Dec. 16), I was swallowing back bile while watching the Christmas songs for which you and I share equal antipathy being etched into the psyche my 2-year-old Jewish daughter. The frustration and sorrow that you feel about the trite-making of Christmas is, to borrow a phrase from your (likewise appropriated) Yiddish-Minnesota phrasebook, bubkes compared with a Jew's sufferance of the Santa Claus tube-feeding to which we are subjected each year. You see, we have a little history that colors our feelings. I'll leave it there.

That you included even the mere mention of Jews in your diatribe, you might imagine upon further reflection, is beyond infuriating. As an outsider to your traditions and holidays, I frankly agree with many of your conclusions, but you missed the point: the hijacking of Christmas is purely the result of capitalism and the free market economy. The fact that a bunch of Jews wrote your Christmas songs is solely a function thereof. I needn't lecture you on the confluence of commerce and artisanship, but suffice it to say, it is a two-way street. In other words, y'all bought the songs that we sold. You buy it, you break it.

The long reach of your words is based upon the popularity you enjoy among the intellectual elite. Just take another look at the numbers at the listenership of the public radio stations that carry your program, then re-read the opinion piece in question. If self-sabotage is your aim, my compliments. If not, you may consider apologies to: Jews, pinch-faced drones (those who strive to understand and forward the human condition), Harvard alumni and the sorry suckers who work too hard to make Christmas perfect. Admittedly a mixed bag -- your targets are either too elite for you or not elite enough.
I think it's fair to summarize the sentiment here as: "No lowly Christian is fit to compare their sufferance to that of a jew. Yes, we wrote (and profit from) these shitty songs, but even mere disapproval of this infuriates us. Blame economics. Purely. Repent sinner, or feel our retribution."

Another response is notable for its superbly compact hypocrisy and falsehood. Jews aren't the ones who secularized Christmas:
We can barely get our children excused from school on the Jewish High Holidays, and Mr. Keillor whines about Jews who wrote songs inspired by Christmas.
The author inverts reality, claiming her imagined concerns are concrete and Keillor's concrete concerns are imagined.

Lots of people have noted how and why jews have helped secularize Christmas. I'll provide some examples of that in a moment. What I'd like to see is some evidence of jews anywhere in the US not being excused from school on their high holidays. In the midst of the greatest ripoff in history, which absolutely, positively had to be dealt with immediately, or else, congress somehow found the time to observe a jewish high holiday. Beyond that, the full force and weight of the US government stands ready to defend jews and their jewish children against any discrimination, whether by race or religion. The media isn't at all shy about reporting anti-jewish "hate" within minutes of the mere hint of it being detected. Call it whining, but Christians, despite the supposed protection offered to religion, are treated to a different, lower standard than jews, and not only in schools. The assault goes on 24/7/365. Here's a small sample I've gathered over the past few months.Even if it were restricted to the words and deeds of Larry David, Bill Maher, Tim Wise, or Bonnie Erbe alone this list could be much longer. Garrison Keillor is a weak and lonely voice in a media brimming with jews whose fame and fortune aren't at all threatened by their nasty attacks on Christians. For his crime Keillor will likely apologize and/or lose his soapbox. No such punishment awaits David, Maher, Wise, Erbe, or the hundreds of others guilty of saying far more hostile things than, say, shitty Christian music has ruined jewish holidays.

The point is that Keillor has a point. If anything, his complaint was too narrow. Similar defenses of Christianity - made by prominent voices in mainstream media - are increasingly timid and rare. The problem with Keillor's complaint is not that it is inaccurate or attacks "the jews" - it's that he implied one aspect of a tiny subset of jewish influence is bad. For that, under our thoroughly judaized regime, any man will be villified. This is especially true for anyone with a prominent voice.

In Garrison Keillor: 'Lousy Holiday Songs By Jews Trash Up Malls', Noel Sheppard describes the Keillor paragraph I quoted at the top as "rabid anti-Semitism", provided a long list of well-known Christmas songs written by jews, and then called Keillor an "anti-Semitic (expletive deleted)". There is no dispute about the contribution of jews. Keillor's use of the words "trash" and "dreck" to describe that contribution is what triggers the typically hyperbolic reaction.

Andy Lewis, writing in the LA Times, titled his article published on 24 December 2009, Bob Dylan joins long list of Jewish musicians performing Christmas music. Apparently unaware that the idea is controversial he also provided a window into the jewish rationale for secularizing Christmas:
Diamond closed the album with a raucous performance of comedian Adam Sandler's "The Chanukah Song," which name-checks Jewish entertainers, including Kirk Douglas, Dinah Shore and "Star Trek's" William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.

"I thought I'd throw one in there for my people too, because we always feel a little left out around this time of year," Diamond told the Telegraph in London recently. "Christmas music is amazingly evocative to people of all religions and cultures."

Others also cite the universal aspects of the holiday season -- and the role of music in it -- as their justification for taking on the subject of Christmas.

"I feel the Christmas holidays and the music are basically, for me, not religious," Neil Sedaka, one of the most prolific and successful songwriters of the '60s and '70s, said from his home in L.A. recently. "I'm proud to be Jewish, but I don't practice it. To me the holidays are about bringing friends and family together. I can remember vividly years ago listening to Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas' and thinking that Christmas music should be played throughout the year because it's so joyous."

Sedaka's 2008 double album, "Miracle of Christmas," brought together one disc of original songs he'd written, with a second disc of traditional songs and carols that he'd put together for the QVC cable channel.

"I started out as a concert pianist at the Juilliard School," Sedaka said, "and I'm a very studied musician. I think of the music first, and what it brings to the people emotionally."

Barry Manilow too says that the power of music, more than the scriptural messages, has spurred him to record three collections of Christmas music over the years.
In An All-American Christmas, published on 22 December 2005, Harold Meyerson claims:
Irving Berlin invented the separation of church and song with “White Christmas.”
"White Christmas" was one of a dozen numbers that Berlin wrote for "Holiday Inn," each song commemorating a specific holiday. One hesitates to impute anything so vulgar as a message to a Crosby-Fred Astaire musical, but the message of this musical is that we are all Americans and these are our holidays. Easter belongs to all of us, even if it is about little more than strolling down Fifth Avenue. Christmas belongs to all of us. The religious content of those holidays was fine for Christian believers, but the composer of "God Bless America" preferred to celebrate a common national identity, complete with common holidays that had nonsectarian meanings.

Berlin kept Christmas in the public square and, more than anyone before or since, sent it out over the public airwaves. But it was an American, not a Christian, Christmas. And by the crass index of number of recordings sold, and the not-so-crass index of number of spirits touched, Berlin's nonsectarian holiday has been the predominant version of Christmas in this country for the past 60 years.

Now the Fox News demagogues want to impose a more sectarian Christmas on us, supplanting the distinctly American holiday we have celebrated lo these threescore years with a holiday that divides us along religious lines. Bill O'Reilly can blaspheme all he wants, but like millions of my countrymen, I take attacks on Irving Berlin's America personally. If O'Reilly doesn't like it here, why doesn't he go back to where he came from?
Like Bonnie Erbe, Harold Meyerson has a powerful media amplifier he uses to vent his hostility towards Christians, especially White Christians. Here he lauds the recent imposition of a secularized Christmas while heaping fear and loathing on the original, secular Christmas. In Economy? What Economy?, published on 3 Sept 2008, Meyerson echoes Erbe:
this year's GOP convention is almost shockingly -- un-Americanly -- white. Long term, this whiteness is a huge problem
Jews are constantly complaining about the problems they have with Christains and Whites in terms far more broad, far more hateful, and far more common than what Garrison Keillor wrote. As Edmund Connelly's essay Daniel Jonah Goldhagen: Peddler of Hate makes clear, the problems extend far beyond shitty Christmas songs.

OT -- look at this -- Alan Greenspan's testimony last April before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees, and Border Security:

"Our skill shortage, I trust, will ultimately be resolved through reform of our primary and secondary education systems. But, at best, that will take many years. An accelerated influx of highly skilled immigrants would bridge that gap and, moreover, carry with it two significant bonuses.

"First, skilled workers and their families form new households. They will, of necessity, move into vacant housing units, the current glut of which is depressing prices of American homes. And, of course, house price declines are a major factor in mortgage foreclosures and the plunge in value of the vast quantity of U.S. mortgage-backed securities that has contributed substantially to the disabling of our banking system. The second bonus would address the increasing concentration of income in this country. Greatly expanding our quotas for the highly skilled would lower wage premiums of skilled over lesser skilled. Skill shortages in America exist because we are shielding our skilled labor force from world competition. Quotas have been substituted for the wage pricing mechanism. In the process, we have created a priviliged elite whose incomes are being supported at noncompetitively high levels by immigration quotas on skilled professionals. Eliminating such restrictions would reduce at least some of our income inequality.

"If we are to continue to engage the world and enhance our standards of living, we will have to either markedly improve our elementary and secondary education or lower our barriers to skilled immigrants. In fact, progress on both fronts would confer important economic benefits.

"Immigration policy, of course, is influenced by far more than economics. Policy must confront the very difficult issue of the desire of a population to maintain the cultural roots that help tie a society together. Clearly a line must be drawn between, on the one hand, allowing the nation to be flooded with immigrants that could destabilize the necessary comity of a society and, on the other hand, allowing the nation to become static and bereft of competition, and as a consequence to lose its economic vitality. The United States has always been able eventually to absorb waves of immigration and maintain its fundamental character as a nation, particularly the individual rights and freedoms bestowed by our Founding Fathers. But it must be conceded that the transitions were always more difficult than hindsight might now make them appear."

Nice concession. :-/

American skilled workers = a d*mn privileged elite. WTF?! How on earth would reducing the wages of American skilled workers "enhance our standards of living"? Can't quite see how those two things fit together....

The hatred of Jesus is as great today as it was yesterday. No one has ever been so hated from the people of this earth, hated more so than Satan himself.

The weeping and gnashing of teeth can be heard from all corners of the world. The hatred reeks in America, it is the norm rather than the abnormal. In fact it is the teaching in schools against Christ without saying his name, which grows with leaps and bounds. No other person has been so hated that even the mention of his name brings people to curse, wave their fists and spit with every syllable. They are up in arms if someone says "Jesus." His name is removed from books, lectures, and is kept away from the public eye more so than any porn. Jesus is lower than pornography.

Woe to them that make good evil and evil good.

In a city in California at a town meeting a man said "Jesus" in a prayer. A Jewish man who claimed he was an atheist was offended. He forgot all about the diversity and lovey dovey stuff people of his ilk preach when they hold up signs of "Unity" "Welcome Diversity." "End Closed Mindedness" or any slogan of the day they peddle to warp the nations. Nay, even when the man apologized and informed him he did not intend to offend him, the Jewish fellow was still gnashing his teeth. He sued the city.

In another California city the Cross was destroyed and replaced with a Star:

The Redlands police chief has ordered officers to remove a patch from their uniforms that shows the city seal, or use a marker to black out the cross. The city also plans to hire jewelers to modify the badges worn by police and firefighters, turning the cross into a glimmering star

link Black markers were used to blyte the cross until the entire city could be changed over to the Star.

The ACL-Jews refused to name the residents who had complained.

Then they went after Los Angeles tiny cross stricken from city emblem
in both cases it went against the majority wishes.

The cross trackers are everywhere, this guy threatened to sue for this city emblem:



One of the posters commented the emblem would likely prevent Jews from moving there. (Is that bad?)

Minority rights have superceded majority rights. The minority in these cases have been the Jews themselves, no other. Hence the reason for all the minority rights laws which passed in the "hippie 60's" under the disguise to help the black people.

Yet nothing else beyond Jesus seems so offensive in California or elsewhere in the U.S.A. Hugh Hefner is applauded, his porn and sex mansion is worshipped.

Madonna masturbating with a cross was promoted, celebrated and put in the Hall of Fame. Later she appears hanging from a cross in her world tour.



It was said in days of old "pretty is as pretty does." Madonna isn't even pretty. If you look close at her picture you can see the serpent in her face. A drop of Jewish blood is prominent in her features and more so her actions.

I guess the cross is only offensive if it sits in a tiny little city emblem representing the history of the city but not when it is used as a tool to masturbate or deface.
The defaced cross is highly received by the same people who find the cross offensive.

Interesting post, Tan.

We must remember that Christmas is not only a time for cheer, but is also a time for jewmenstation. This is when most jews feel most called upon to trash, heap scorn upon and subvert the true meaning of Christmas for those who are not only their hosts (as reluctant as we have become after finding proofs of their duplicities) but their betters.

A related term is found in Slider Encyclopedia.

"Jewmas is a slang term for a cliche set of activities Jews do during Christmas, partially as a contrarian, ironic response to the annual yuletide frenzy. Specifically, Jewmas consists of going out for Chinese food and going to the movies.

Jews living in Christian countries have long had difficulty with the December holiday season. With a long decrease in anti-semitism, the Christmas season remains a potent reminder to contemporary Jews of their ethnic and/or religious difference. The first wave of Jewish immigrants to the US actually adopted Christmas in the spirit of assimilation. There was a second generation backlash against this practice which objected to celebrating what is essentially a major christian religious holiday. The backlash has been largely succesful, as 82% of Jewish households have never celebrated the holiday.1 As a Jewish replacement, the celebration of Hanukkah has been modified to include gift-giving and family gatherings. However, not all Jews agree with this practice, and besides that Hanukkah starts anywhere between November 28 and December 26, in accordance with the Jewish calendar. The problem of what a jew does on December 25th remains, since most everyone has the day off from work but most of the population is busy celebrating. The answer for some is Jewmas.

The origin of Jewmas as a cultural response is muddy but probably rooted in an urbane (specifically, new york city) Jewish sensibility, given the stereotypical Jewish love of Chinese food, and availability of both Chinese restaurants and movie theatres in cities. As Christmas is a federal holiday, most services and shops are closed for the day. Those that are open (with restricted hours) usually play into the commercial aspect of the holiday to move product. Thus Jewmas is born partially out of need to find places that are open, have regular hours, and are mercifully free of the alienating Christmas frenzy. Movie theatres stay open to bring in the holiday box office money, and Chinese (presumably Buddhist) restaurants are less likely to close during the holiday, so they are two of the few places that qualify.

What is ironic about Jewmas is how it denies the "specialness" of Christmas. Indeed, going to the movies and eating out are typical, even mundane, things to do. Jewmas makes December 25th "just another day." Jewmas is even popular enough to have a social aspect – no better place to feel a sense of fraternity with fellow outcasts than a local movie theatre or Chinese restaurant."

A beginning to a "solution" for our problems in the REAL USA can be found in Moldova, as is reported upon by Christopher Bollyn.


http://www.bollyn.com/index.php#article_11544

"On December 13, some 200 Orthodox Christians in the Moldovan capital Chisinau removed the large, metal menorah that had been set up in downtown Europe Square, and placed it upside down on Stefan cel Mare Square at the base of a statue of King Stephen the Great. The menorah was replaced by an Orthodox cross, the religious symbol of the vast majority of the Moldovan population.

The incident is being misinterpreted as an act of hatred and anti-Semitism, which is politically convenient for Zionists like the Anti-Defamation League of the B'nai B'rith. It needs to be understood, however, that this was a natural and normal protest against a crass provocation by the Jews themselves. No Jews were hurt nor were any Jews denied any of their human rights.

What needs to be remembered is that this was a non-violent and natural reaction to a blatant provocation caused by the Jews who put up their anti-Christian symbol in the capital of an Orthodox Christian nation during a Christian holiday. The reaction by the Christians was correct and proper, in my opinion. It would be wonderful to see the Christians of Chicago removing the huge menorah that dominates their downtown plaza every Christmas (see below). Western Europeans and Americans, however, have been lulled into accepting mindless "tolerance" through which they have been deceived into accepting de facto Jewish dominance of their cultures and nations. Such mindless tolerance has caused their nations to be looted and plundered by Jewish criminals and their young Christian men to be dragged off to fight and die in costly wars to support the Zionist agenda. Christians in America should understand the historical importance of non-violent symbolic protest actions like the removal of the menorah in Moldova and stand up for their faith and nation in a similar way." {The article continues at the link}.

Just when you thought Jewish obsession with victimhood in the West (but not the West Bank) couldn't be parodied anymore, along comes B'nai Brith of Canada.

For the upcoming Winter Olympics there is no women's ski jumping because the sport isn't well developed enough to justify being a medal-worthy event.

TORONTO, January 4, 2010 – The League for Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada, has called on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee (VANOC) to reconsider the continued exclusion of Women’s Ski Jumping from the upcoming Olympic Games. According to the League’s National Chair Allan Adel, and its National Director, Ruth Klein, although the recent Supreme Court decision technically places the IOC outside the ambit of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the position taken on women’s ski jumping violates the spirit of the Charter, which prohibits discrimination based on gender.

In a letter to John Furlong, CEO of VANOC, the League recalled the 1936 Berlin Olympics when the IOC turned a blind eye to Hitler’s fascist regime, which was even then implementing discriminatory policies against Jews that impacted Games that year. The League asks the IOC and the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee (VANOC) to focus on its policies and practices relating to discrimination, “and that includes eliminating discrimination against women now, just as it should have included resistance to discrimination against Jews then”.

Frank Dimant, Executive Vice President of B’nai Brith Canada, noted: “The Olympic Charter clearly states that ‘Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind…’ By the Olympic Charter’s own definition, this includes discrimination by ‘race, religion, politics [and] gender’. The IOC should make good on actualizing these principles instead of prevaricating by citing ‘technical’ barriers to including women ski jumpers.

“Surely, on the eve of 2010, gender discrimination has no place in the Olympics. It certainly has no place in Canada.”

Auster at his finest.

Americans were thus fooled by evil and devious Jews into sacrificing gentile American lives for the sake of Jews.

There he goes again.

Scheuer says he's concerned that Jewish power prevents frank ddiscussion of the role of Jews in politics. Like other anti-Israelites and Jew-haters, he doesn't realize--and probably doesn't care--that it's his own malicious statements about Jews that make legitimate criticism of Jews impossible.

Exaggerate, denigrate, distort, and in conclusion scapegoat "the anti-israelites and jew-haters". Pay no mind to "jewish power".

Michael Scheuer, the former director of a CIA unit assigned to track down Osama Bin-Laden, calmly expressed the view that American soldiers are now dying in Iraq for the sake of Israelis. He further claimed that any debate of American support for Israel is squelched in the public sphere."

Excellent comment from John (on the phone from Franklin, New York), though I would state it more broadly.

Good morning. I, for one, am sick and tired of all these jews coming on television, making movies, talking on the radio, writing in newspapers and magazines - hectoring, cajoling, shaming, and lecturing the rest of us to do what's best for jews. To war, to borrow, to buy, to bail, to celebrate "diversity", to not "discriminate", to not "hate", to censor - their list of dos and don'ts for us never ends. They're willing to spend the last drop of the world's blood and treasure to get their way. They have way too much power. The fealty of American politicians to Israel is only one glaringly obvious facet of this. I'm sick and tired of it.

This is "anti-semitism"? So what? Jews as a group are rich and powerful and don't have any problem scapegoating Whites. I'm sick and tired of that too.

Blacks (not all blacks but blacks as an organized political force), other nonwhites (not all nonwhites but nonwhites as an organized political force), and white leftists are waging a war to destroy white Western civilization—or, if you prefer, simply civilization. The only way they can be defeated is if the white majority of the Western world stands up, identifies this anti-Western war for what it is, and begins to push back.

"white leftists"? What is that but a euphemism for jews and their White useful idiots? Auster knows it too. He wrote:

What distinguishes Jewish liberalism from Protestant liberalism is the following: Jewish liberals see white Christians as guilty. The Jews feel OK about themselves, they think the white gentile majority is the problem.

By contrast, white Protestant liberals feel guilty about themselves. This leaves them without a confident group selfhood. They believe only in equality, only in their own guilt for somehow standing in the way of equality. It is this lack of collective and even individual selfhood, this inner nothingness, this willingness to be destroyed, that makes the white Protestants the true liberals.

The Jews, whose collective and individual psyche is not guilty under liberalism (since in the liberal world view Jews are victims and the champions of victims), have psychological power and self-confidence and thus are not true liberals.


Auster says he wants "the white majority" to stand up, identify the anti-White war for what it is, and push back. Then, when someone points out it's jews leading the war to destroy Whites, he cries "anti-semitism!" To even express a confident group selfhood, to disguish American and israeli interests, or Whites from jews for instance, prompts him to babble incoherent bile.

Auster is yet another jew who makes me sick. He's trying to tell Whites what to do, even to the point of being flagrantly self-contradictory. What he says makes sense in only one way. He does what he thinks is best for jews.

Tan,

Is Auster serious when he, "says he wants "the white majority" to stand up, identify the anti-White war for what it is, and push back"? Maybe that is because he is supportive of a group which has much more control of the US than they would ever admit. Why would a commentator who should be aware of that groups actions against Whites deny their influence? I think there is much to indicate that a considerable cadre of lower-level groups operate in order to both support and to hide, "Sayonism in Action":

Some commentators are not so obtuse as to not be aware that they are serving higher interests of jewish power from whom they will either expect, obtain or deserve, reward. Tan, you are correct that these types of jewish supporters:
-------

"Exaggerate, denigrate, distort, and in conclusion scapegoat "the anti-israelites and jew-haters". Pay no mind to "jewish power".

Evil and devious? Yep. What really irks him is that some people aren't fooled."
--------

What really irks many of them is that there are many more people waking up to the evils which they so deviously hide.

Another example showing that Auster's concern is for Jewish interests. For Auster, making sure the British National Party is philo-Semitic is more important than saving Britain from destruction. Sycophant "Daniel R." complains that "anti-Semitic" elements in the BNP have not been "purged" completely and says the BNP must be "serious about opposing anti-semitism." Auster agrees and says "the BNP is on probation." Auster implies that he would have no objection to Peter Hitchens and Melanie Phillips vilifying the BNP if he deemed the party "anti-Semitic."
